Abstract Submission Policy
Abstracts derived from papers already published, either in print or in an online format, are not eligible for consideration to present at SER. Papers that have been accepted for publication but not yet published may be submitted but, in the event that the paper is published in advance of the SER Mid-Year Meeting, the author is required to notify SER and withdraw the abstract from presentation. Note: Abstracts scheduled to be presented at the SER Annual Meeting (June) are not eligible to be presented at the SER Mid-Year Meeting (March). If abstract is presented at the SER Mid-Year Meeting, it is not eligible to be presented at the SER Annual Meeting.
Please use the following guidance to prepare your abstract:
All abstracts must be written in English and submitted through the online submission system. Use sentence case for your title.
Do not include references, tables, or mathematical equations in the abstract. Avoid acronyms and, where necessary, spell them out when used for the first time (common abbreviations in epidemiology such as OR, RR, RD, and CI do not need to be spelled out). Select a primary and secondary topic area from the list, which will be used to organize concurrent contributed sessions. The abstract should not exceed 2,000 characters, INCLUDING spaces. Title and author information are not included in the 2,000 character limit. One figure is allowed to accompany each abstract submission (optional).
Presentation of methodologic details and analysis results will assist reviewers in judging the quality of the research. Findings that advance knowledge are weighed more favorably than confirmation of established relations. Clarity and brevity of writing will allow evaluation of the importance of the research. Each abstract is scored by at least three reviewers.
